Cam, who was initially prepared for a natural birth, found out her baby was breech at 39 weeks. "I was going to go full-on natural. I had taken courses and done all of the exercises, and I was ready to go," Cam told People.
She ultimately underwent a cesarean section, which she says was difficult to recover from. "You get sliced open- it’s crazy, it’s major surgery," she explains. "Then you’re stuck in bed, you can’t even lift up your baby, you can’t even get up to go to the bathroom without someone pushing you out of bed and then your hormones are going f***ing nuts.
She adds, "Not to take away from the miracle, but those first two weeks are rough. And then of course your body heals itself. Super cool, super crazy."
Throughout her recovery process, Cam had the support of her husband. Cam and Weaver met in September of 2015 through mutual friends. A year later, in September 2016, they got married in an intimate desert ceremony in California.
"I had a great partner: My husband would get the baby up, change the diaper, hand her to me to breastfeed, take her back, shush her, and lay her, get her swaddled and get her back in bed. It just made me love him so much more," she says, adding, "This is my ride-or-die for sure, because we just got s**t on together at 2 in the morning- a next level of love."
Now that Cam's getting the hang of motherhood, she's ready to return to work. The "Burning House" singer will debut her new single, "Till There's Nothing Left" this Thursday (February 13) with performances on the Today show and Late Night with Seth Meyers.
